Intensive Care Unit Equipment Market Research, 2031

The global intensive care unit equipment market size was valued at $6.6 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $9.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2022 to 2031. Intensive care unit equipment is used in the intensive care unit (ICU) for the care of critically ill patients. The intensive care unit, or ICU, is a hospital or medical center department that treats and manages patients with serious or life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Patients may be sent directly to the ICU or may transition there from the emergency room for longer-term care. It is hoped that most patients will eventually recover enough to be transferred out of the ICU. The ICU is staffed by a range of medical staff, including those that specialize in critical and intensive care. There is various intensive care unit equipment including a pulse oximeters, dialysis equipment, ventilator, catheter, tubes, pumps, bedside monitors that are used to improve the medical condition of patients.

Intensive Care Unit Equipment Market

Historical overview

The intensive care unit equipment market was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2018-2020. Most of the growth during this period was derived from Asia-Pacific owing to the increase in post-surgical complications that require critical care in ICU and increases in patient admission in ICU, rising disposable incomes, as well as the well-established presence of domestic companies in the region.   

Market dynamics

The ICU equipment market size has witnessed growth, owing to an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases, respiratory diseases are asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, renal disease, heart attack, kidney and liver failure, brain cancer, tuberculosis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and emphysema.

According to the “National Center for Health Statistics”, every 20 seconds one American suffers a heart attack. According to the centers for disease control and prevention, in 2019 was estimated that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. as well, causing approximately 647,000 deaths per year. The risk of tumors is one of the biggest healthcare concerns in the world, claiming an estimated 40 million lives every year, 8.5 million of whom reside in Asia.

The global pandemic COVID-19 threatens the healthcare system, and thus impacts the ability to take care of critically injured patients and other surgical patients. An increase has been witnessed in the number of trauma centers worldwide to handle the most serious conditions such as car accident injuries, gunshot wounds, traumatic brain injuries, stab wounds, serious falls, and blunt trauma.

In addition, the growing demand for intensive care unit equipment is the result of the rise in the number of diseased people across the world. The aging population is more vulnerable to chronic diseases and requires critical care, which increases the demand for intensive care unit equipment. For instance, according to a report published by, UNFPA Asia-Pacific it was estimated that the number of older people in the Asia-Pacific will triple reaching 1.3 billion by 2050 out of which women constitute the majority (53 percent) of the population aged 60 or older in the region, and their share rises to 60 percent above age 80. With technological advancements, the designs of intensive care unit equipment have been majorly improved, thereby increasing the preference for intensive care unit equipment among patients. This factor has led to the growth of the intensive care unit equipment market.

Moreover, the rise in the prevalence of neurological diseases drives the growth of the intensive care equipment market. According to the review article by the Journal of Human Hypertension in Asia-Pacific, up to 66% of hemorrhagic strokes, 45% of ischemic strokes, and 39% of ischemic heart diseases are attributed to hypertension. In the western pacific and south-eastern Asia, the prevalence of hypertension ranges from 5–47% in men and from 7– 38% in women, which is comparable with that of western/developed countries Thus, the abovementioned factors are predicted to contribute toward the growth of the intensive care unit equipment market share during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the increase in the number of hospitals and the rise in the prevalence of preterm births contributes to the growth of the market. In addition, many governments and private organizations work toward increasing awareness regarding the effectiveness of advanced ICU equipment, which has encouraged both small and large hospitals to adopt the technology and increase the number of ICUs.

In addition, technological advancements in intensive care unit equipment; the launch of various products, and strategies among key players such as acquisition, collaboration, and agreement drive the growth of the intensive care unit equipment market. For instance, in April 2020, Getinge signed an agreement with Scania CV AB to ramp up ventilator production. Getinge announced an increase in the production of ventilators for intensive care units.  Getinge has entered into a partnership agreement with Scania, covering the temporary hire of Scania personnel to support Getinge’s ongoing ramp-up of its ventilator production.

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a positive impact on the intensive care unit equipment market as the SARS-CoV-2 virus attacks the respiratory system. When infected, a patient’s ability to breathe is compromised, which propels the demand for various medical services, including intensive care units (beds and ventilators) and personal protective equipment for healthcare. According to “The New York Times” One New York hospital has reportedly attempted to treat two patients per ventilator out of desperation. Hence, these types of news show that the COVID-19 outbreak rapidly increases the demand for intensive care unit equipment. The COVID-19 infection is associated with respiratory failure and requires critical care with ventilator support. Mechanical ventilation has regularly been employed to oxygenate seriously ill COVID-19 patients. For instance, according to the report from Imperial College London in November 2020, 30% of COVID-19 hospitalized patients are likely to require mechanical ventilation. Therefore, the demand for intensive care equipment has increased and boosted the growth of the intensive care equipment market.

Many companies have increased the production of intensive care unit equipment to fulfill the unmet medical demand due to the rise in COVID-19 cases. For instance, according to an article published by Berto Pandolfo, Senior Lecturer of Product Design, at the University of Technology Sydney, in April 2020, key players are racing to design and manufacture much-needed ventilators around the world, to address a global lack of supply. 

In addition, increase in collaboration between the government and key players for increasing the production of intensive care equipment, and treating COVID-19 patients. For instance, in April 2020, Medtronic collaborated with technology partners and governments to drive new ventilator production to support COVID-19 patients across the globe. The company announced that by the end of April, it would start to manufacture more than 400 ventilators a week and over 700 by the end of May. By the end of June, Medtronic’s target is 1,000 ventilators a week. In April 2020, Philips and the U.S. Government collaborated to increase the production of hospital ventilators in its manufacturing sites in the U.S. Philips to ramp up the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. Philips plans to double its production by May 2020 and achieve a four-fold increase by the third quarter of 2020 for supply to the U.S. and global markets.

Thus, the muted variants of COVID-19 have influenced the entire healthcare sector to meet healthcare requirements, including intensive care unit equipment such as pulse oximeters, mechanical ventilators, ICU beds, and bedside monitors. Therefore, the COVID-19 outbreak boosted the growth of the intensive care unit equipment market.
